This morning I caved and let him feed himself. I know what you’re thinking “He’s 15 months old, give the kid a spoon!” True. But if I can feed him and thus make sure he eats it all and control the mess (a little) then I’m going to! But after a week of morning tantrums where I played dumb pretending this wasn’t an “I DO MYSEFF!” tantrum I finally gave in. Surprisingly he still ate almost all of it. There was also a bit of a mess.
My Mother’s day present arrived today. It’s a Buddhist/Yogi prayer Om Mani Padme Hum meaning “Hail to the jewel of the lotus.” In other words, we must look within ourselves to find the peace of the Buddha. This is something I should remind myself of so it’s good to keep it close by.
This afternoon Jack and I were playing outside on the lawn. We climbed up on the deck for me to grab something. I turned my head for a second to check some of the potted plants and heard “Splash!” Jack had decided to play in the pool and forgo a swimsuit. Outfit change #1
